Ashurst continues rebuilding year with securitization hire
Ashurst has recruited securitization partner Jonathan Walsh from Baker McKenzie.
Walsh has a history of securitization leadership, having headed international securities at legacy Norton Rose as well as serving as the global co-head of securitization at Bakers when he joined in 2005. He stepped down from that role at the start of this year, making way for Philippe Steffens to take over.
Ashurst started 2018 behind the eight ball after the loss of three major players in November 2017: corporate partner James Wood left for Sidley Austin, corporate partner Dominic Ross for White & Case, and disputes partner Ben Giaretta for Mishcon de Reya.
